Programme Lead

Frederik is a Design Council Programme Lead who specialises in placemaking, economic regeneration, and social innovation. Frederik works with public and private sector clients – as well as communities – to envision and deliver better places.  

Prior to joining the Design Council, Frederik worked as Future Place Manager at the Royal Institute of British Architects, working with local authorities and stakeholders to develop engaging and deliverable place visions. He also led on the development of the RIBA's award winning "Recovery Roadmap", and on the production of a report discussing placeshaping after Covid-19. 

Before that, Frederik worked as Research & Communications Manager at Public Practice, a not-for-profit social enterprise which builds the public sector’s capacity to improve the quality and equality of everyday places. In this role, Frederik led on the development of the organisation's Research & Development activities and its communications strategy.
